Which is better Norton or Mcaffe?

Which anti-virus firewall do you think is better? This is because i don't know which one to buy.

Update:

I have Norton 360, ok yes it does it's job (occasionly) i've recently gotten sevearal viruses, unless it wasen't up-to-date, im not sure but it couldn't get rid of these viruses.

I had to use some free anti-virus software (search and destroy 1.6) to get rid of these viruses.

The only reason i prefer Norton 360 is because it stops me from going on bad sites :S

It's good for like tracking cookies,malware, and other stuff, seems to struggle against trojans :S

Could people say which one, what version the anti-virus is, E.G: Norton 360.

Then add why they would recommand it and why it is better and has it helped you in the past?

This is because Norton will be releasing a new Norton soon and mcaffe are releasing new software.

    Norton is not a good anti-virus

    Norton Live update are responsible for BSOD ( Blue Screen Of Death )

    for millions of PC in China

    see story

    http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?com...

    According to an article by the Washington Post,

    Norton Antivirus had one of the worst average response times

    for providing virus definition updates based on the worst virus outbreaks,

    lagging behind every major competitor, including NOD32, Kaspersky,

    Quick Heal, F-Secure, Sophos, Avira, Trend Micro, F-Prot, Panda, Protector Plus, AVG, avast!, ClamWin, and McAfee.

    Norton detection rates have fallen behind others.

    I have use McAfee for 10 years before I switch to Avast.

    Avast have better detection rates for virus than Norton & McAfee.

    see comparison test

    http://www.virusbtn.com/Session-43ed5f077cb4ad8703...

    Avast can do a boot time scan before windows start to remove stubborn viruses.

    Get Avast Home Edition version 4.8 ( FREE for personal use )
